Yes, you can return it to factory. If there is a option to use non-destructive recovery, use that. However, you will still lose some of your personal files, and any programs you added since new.

A freind gave me a compaq evo d300v desk top windows xp professional. How do I do factory recovery? I was told f11 but so far I was able to f8 and open windows advance options menue.


Best advice here is to get the windows 7 operating system as windows XP is no longer supported by Microsoft and updates are no longer forthcoming
a factory recover may require a re-entry of the registration code so you will need to get that from your friend..

How do you put the Windows XP back to factory default in the start?


There's two ways, one is using system restore and using the oldest restore point, as long as the points weren't deleted to increase storage space.

The other way is to use a windows XP install disk and doing a fresh install of XP.


As for a system, you can restore a system like a pre-built, say a eMachine using the recovery partition or recovery disks.

My Dell Inspiron notebook keep turning display off and then go to sleep later.


Go into the Windows Control panel, then to power settings. There you can adjust the settings for the monitor sleep behavior, as well as computer sleep and hibernation.

There are seperate settings for while plugged into power and while on battery.

If you have trouble, just let me know which operating system (XP, Vista, Win7, etc) you are running and I will give you step by step instructions.

Hope this helps you,

-Ben

Try checking your Windows settings by right-clicking on the Windows desktop, then properties. You will be able to see Display Properties dialog box. Click on ScreenSaver, then click on Power Saving.

Wont restart my compuetr


if your computer has restore capabilites then you need to enter the bios and make sure that D2D recovery is enabled. Do this by pressing F2 on boot.

Then you need to press Alt and F10 not just F10 to enter the recovery console. But press it once the manufacturers screen appears such as tiny, gateway, Hp etc.....

If this does not work for you then make sure that CDrom is set as first priority in the bios boot options if you are attempting to Repair windows with the disk.

I hope this helps

Forogt My XP Username Password! Cant Log In!


I've heard that Microsoft discontinued the password recovery program for Windows XP but you might want to go to Microsoft.com and search for "windows XP recovery program". If you didn't remove or change the original admistrator name out of the computer, you might be able to get in that way simply by typing in administrator and leave the password blank. Then you can reset it to whatever you need to.

Otherwise if those solutions don't work, then you might have to restore windows to get it to reset it back to factory default.
